U.S. public and private sectors are dedicating more than half a billion dollars to address key water challenges around the world
Last week, U.S. public and private sectors announced that they are dedicating more than half a billion dollars to address key water challenges around the world through the newly formed U.S. Water Partnership. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) General Counsel Scott Fulton and former EPA Administrator William K. Reilly keynoted the global launch of the partnership, one of six signature initiatives announced by the U.S. government at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development.
A joint effort of both public and private sectors in the U.S., the U.S. Water Partnership is supported by 41 members, including government agencies, academic organizations, water coalitions, non-governmental organizations and the private sector. The partnership was first announced March 22, 2012, by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
